Nuts

Table manners for eating nuts. Nuts are dry one-seeded fruits eaten with the fingers.

At the table, a nut spoon is provided to spoon nuts from bowl to plate.

Good table manners call for a spoon to be provided with finger foods served from a common bowl. Use the spoon to take nuts from the common bowl, not your hands (this rule applies to any unwrapped food presented in a common bowl).
